    Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 ISO - Download or Create

    Brink wrote: What VM program are you using? Could you back up the fully updated VM to be able to restore as needed to deploy? It's VMware Workstation 12.x Pro. No I can't do that because each VM must be 100% different and I would not get it restoring fully update VM backups. That's why I need...

    Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 ISO - Download or Create

    Hello Brink :D, Maybe I don't express myself clearly: I don't want to check for upgrades after an installation. I need to create an ISO with the Windows 8.1 updates embedded into it (so it will not need to download the latest cumulative updates via internet). Don't know the correct word for...

    Win8.1 waking up from hibernation .... waiting forever

    Unfortunately the manufacturer did not even provide the BIOS/fw upgrades for Spectre or Meltdown; it is several years there are no updates at all. However hopefully (and touching wood) hybernation is working these days. Ditto, the Sleep mode suggested by MGhee.

    Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 ISO - Download or Create

    HI all, I already own an original Win8.1_Pro_ENG-GB_X64.ISO untouched. But it is the original MSDN release. Therefore should I need to integrate all of the dozen Windows Updates released since the 2014, which is the procedure or the appropriate thread, please? Thank you.

    Win8.1 waking up from hibernation .... waiting forever

    Hi MGhee, Thanks for your help. I actually never evaluated to use Sleep mode! Effectively it is a nice solution. It is working flawlessly for my needs and obviously faster than Hibernation. :cool:

    PC slowed down considerably esp. in regular boot mode; safe mode is much better but still slowed a bit

    @nrabus: First of all run CMD with Admin rights and check your system integrity with a sfc/ scannow . Then running a non-reliable software to check drivers could not be a great idea. You may not know which garbage could be installed together with the supposedly up-to-date drivers. So I...

    Win8.1 waking up from hibernation .... waiting forever

    Edit: I pressed again much longer the power button and it rebooted again...this time. But which maintenance could be done in order to obtain a flawlessly wake up from hybernation? :confused: A scandisk and hard disk SMART status are fine. Also a sfc /scannow reported no integrity violations...

    Win8.1 waking up from hibernation .... waiting forever

    Good morning, A laptop with Windows 8.1 sometimes locks itself in 'Waiting' mode with rotating cursor after a regular hybernation command chosen in the previous session. Unfortunately sometimes it takes forever. Today it is one of those times. In the past, ahead of these events, brutally I...
